I finished my junk baskets!
Remember when they looked like this?...
I had searched for baskets for a long time that would fit on our steps.
The rectangular ones took up too much stair space & the square ones were too small.
When I found these pail shaped ones, I knew they would be perfect!
You see, I'm always piling my kids' junk left downstairs onto the steps.
Usually, they each have their own step full of junk.
I thought it might be nice to have a basket to contain it.
Nice for me, anyway.
They don't care.
I knew I wanted to line them, but I just couldn't get myself to drag the sewing machine out.
Then, during my daily blog reading, I read on Home & Harmony how she hot glued liners into her baskets.
These are her baskets.
They are in her totally cute laundry room, by the way.
You really should go over & check it out.
Her home is beautiful.
I, especially, love her her kitchen.
And, yes, I completely copied her basket lining idea.
It was so easy.
I love how they turned out.
Oh, yeah, and the stairs, paint & carpet are finished!
It's so nice to have the house cleaned up & put back together.
I LOVE how the stairs turned out.
What a difference!
By the way, I think I have some permanant nerve damage in my spray painting finger.
I didn't realize how tricky it was to paint baskets.
There are a lot of grooves.
After I was finished, I had a numb finger for two days.
And two weeks later, it still tingles a little.
Do you think I should invest into one of those spray paint handle things?
Do you know of a good one?
Well, here's to lots more spray painting!
Have a great weekend!
